Key Vote NO on the Senate's Minimum Wage Hike

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask that they vote NO on any increase in the federal minimum wage. Sponsored by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), the latest Senate bill, S. 2223, would raise the minimum wage nationwide from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour. Furthermore, it would provide for permanent automatic wage increases, indexed to inflation.

Raise The Minimum Wage? Not In The Obamacare Economy

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has moved forward a bill to raise the national minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. Not only would raising the minimum wage not help lift anyone out of poverty, but it would put jobs further out of reach for those struggling to find work in the Obamacare economy. Raising the minimum wage is a cruel blow to the poor.

QE and Minimum Wage are State Sponsored Price Fixing

In his classic economic text, The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith had the following to say about collusion: “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

The Minimum Wage Doesn’t Help the Poor, It Traps Them

Republicans hate the poor. Why else would they consistently oppose increases to the minimum wage? This is the progressive drumbeat that we have heard year in and year out for as long as anyone can remember, and will continue to hear as Congress tries to push for $10.10 federal minimum wage later this year. But a fallacy can only persist for so long before reality starts to catch up. It’s time to put this talking point to rest once and for all. The myth that higher minimum wages help the poor has finally run its course.

Millennials: Barack Obama Thinks You are Worthless

Ask yourself this question; how much are you worth? Are you willing to put a price tag on your mind and your labor? I would assume that most of us are not willing to put a price tag on ourselves, or on another person. We all have different skills, needs, qualifications, desires, learning abilities, and these characteristics change over time. An individual’s worth in the market at this given moment may be entirely different from their worth a year ago, or a year from now.

The Minimum Wage is Still a Bad Idea

There’s quite a bit on Congress’s to do list entering this new year, especially with the 2014 midterms looming. Discontent with Democrats continues to grow as implementation of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, reveals the entire law to be something akin to a scheme hatched by Wile E. Coyote. With that, Democrats, with the help of some progressive Republicans worried about their own hides, have turned to a good populist ploy: the minimum wage.

President Obama’s Budget: Hardly a “Grand Bargain”

Like malfunctioning clockwork, President Barack Obama's new budget proposal has arrived (a little late) to provide us all with some comic relief. Aptly referred to as a "fantasyland" by POLITICO's David Nather, President Obama's budget hikes taxes, expands federal interference in education, increases the minimum wage, and bails out another federal agency. Sound appealing?
